Ehhhh. "Small, tightly-rolled tortilla, stuffed and fried" in Mexico isn't "Taquito"; it's either a "Taco dorado" ('golden taco', due to their color after fried) or a "Flauta" ('flute', in spanish). We use "Taquito" to refer normal tacos in an "affectionate" way.

It's flauta in Mexico. It's taquito in the freezer aisle of the grocery store in Murica.

Yup, flauta is definitely the more authentic name for this thing. Also, in Spanish, the singular of "tamales" is "tamal". And you should accept "mezcal" for the tequila answer because mezcal is liquor made from agave, whereas tequila is a *specific kind* of mezcal made from a particular cultivar of blue agave from a certain region, kinda like how cognac is a kind of brandy.

Could you also accept "nachoes"? I thought a word ending in a vowel would always get an -es plural, but with this word borrowed from Spanish that's not so!

mole means sauce (like guacamole is guaca=avocado + mole=sauce). the more correct answer for "sauce made with chilis and chocolate" would be "mole poblano"

Tripe is disgusting. The surest way ever to ruin a good bowl of Pho. :P

Tripe is really good in soup, especially in menudo and pho, but that's just my opinion. If you don't like tripe, try pozole. It's like menudo with the hominy and all, but it doesn't have tripe...usually it has pork.

No chilaquiles or migas for "Breakfast eggs served on tortillas"?

I thought Migas as well for that one. Huevos Rancheros, to me, has to have a "ranchero sauce" component.

Ceviche, Chorizo and Arroz con Pollo are not Mexican. They're Peruvian, Spanish and Puerto Rican.

We do not make them the same way; so, yes, in their own style they are Mexican.

No Ceviche is originally from Peru... Therefore Ceviche is not Mexican.. I'm sure Mexicans make Pizza and Burgers their way but doesn't make it Mexican.

So hungry after taking this quiz. In North Dakota we don't have real Mexican restaurants, just the "west-mex" crap like Taco Bell and whatnot. But, I've got some friends from "down Mexico way" and I'm gonna have to visit them for dinner this weekend! :D

Chips and melted cheese, I kept trying chips and queso, queso and chips, queso. I have never had nachos with just melted cheese and never even considered that for an answer.
